Recipe by Chef PotPie
READY IN: 1hr 15mins
SERVES: 9-12


  • 1
    cup butter, softened
  • 2
    cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 3
    unsweetened chocolate squares, melted
  • 12
    teaspoon peppermint extract
  • vanilla wafer crumbs
  • 5
    egg yolks
  • 18
    foil liners, for candy


  • Using electric mixer, beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  • Add melted chocolate and continue beating until thoroughly mixed.
  • Add egg yolks and beat again until fluffy.
  • Beat in peppermint extract.
  • Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon cookie crumbs into candy liners and top with chocolate mixture.
  • Freeze for at least 1 hour. Serve straight from the freezer and re-freeze leftover. You can top these with maraschino cherries, crushed candy canes, even whipped cream, but not necessary. (For a more decadent dessert, serve in pre-made chocolate shells instead of candy liners.
